Windows Server 2003 error messages
Windows Server 2003 R2
The server was working fine but either due to some software installed it started giving problems removed all extra software and had just the OS, MS Office and Symantec end point installed still it gave problems, so uninstalled Symantec end point security and the server started working fine again, on again installing and activating the antivirus Symantec endpoint the server started re starting on or before the login screen, now if opened in LAST KNOWN Good configuration and removing the end point it starts to work again, thought there is some software conflict I removed Symantec End point Security and installed Trial ESCAN internet security and the Server started to give the same problem until I started it in the LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION and removed the ESCAN software. Right now it is working fine but without any antivirus installed in it.

Software/Hardware used:

It is possible that your System is infected. Try scanning your system with one of the tools provided by Symantec.

1. The Power Eraser Tool eliminates deeply embedded and difficult to remove threats that traditional virus scanning doesn’t always detect.

2. If you have access to Fileconnect, the SERT (Symantec Endpoint Recovery Tool) is useful in situations where computers are too heavily infected for the Symantec Endpoint Protection client installed upon them to clean effectively. The Consumer version of this tool is the Norton Bootable Recovery Tool. The tool is free, so there is no need for a Fileconnect account to download the software.

3. The Load point Analysis Tool generates a detailed report of the programs loaded on your system. It is helpful in listing common loadpoints where threats can live.
4. There are several Threat-Specific Removal Tools provided by Security Response.
If you are unable to remove the threat(s) from your systems, please submit the suspected files to Symantec Security Response or ThreatExpert for analysis. New signatures will be created, and included in future definition sets for detection.
